Colors looks very inaccurate on ThinkPad E14

2020-06-30, 9:22 AM

I recently bought a ThinkPad E14 and the colors on the laptop's display are very inaccurate. Colors looks duller than they are. This has been getting very annoying when I complete a sketch and then send the file to different device the colors look completely different than what I intended them to be.
Refer to the attached image. 
I wanted the background to be the light orange but when I transferred it to my phone to post it on Instagram the colors were completely different. The orange was a bright shade of red as seen on the phone. I verified it by sending to a lot of different devices and the result was the same.

I tried to calibrate the display using the intel graphics command center but no avail.

Hi there Rishi2002

 

Have you tried running the Windows Color Calibration for the display ?

 

  1. Hit the Windows key and start typing "Color Calibration"
  2. Select "Calibrate display color" 
  3. Follow the instruction wizard

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

I did the calibration as mentioned but still the problem persists.
I found more examples of colors being displayed incorrectly. Neon green is displayed as yellow. 
Please help me resolve this.

Try "Intel Graphic Command Center". You should be able to adjust each channel of RGB independently. You can also adjust hue and saturation with it. It will help you to some extent only. The E14 display is not capable of reproducing accurate colours. To get accurate colours, you will need a colour calibrated monitor.

I did try it and still it is way off. I get that the panel isn't accurate, but I've seen even cheaper laptops with cheaper screens which display colors better than this. I don't want it to be 100% accurate, I just want it to display green as green and yellow as yellow, instead it displays green as yellow. I booted into Linux using a live USB and it displays the colors correctly. The issue only exists on Windows.

Wondering how things worked for you regarding the screen. 

 

I have been using the E14 for a while and absolutely love everything about it except for the screen! 

a real shame of having such a screen on such an amazing Laptop!

The calibration of the display is horrible on my unit. It is the worst display I've ever used. It is so bad with color accuracy that even the display on my 10-year-old ideapad z560 looks better in terms of color accuracy. The rest of the device is great, I've regularly hit 9 hours of batter life on moderate use (nowhere near the claimed 12.5 hours but 9 hours is way better than other laptops in this segment). I've started a repair ticket on the support page but no one has contacted me regarding the same, If I did not want the TrackPoint so bad, I'd have bought an ASUS vivo book or some other laptop. I had higher expectation from Lenovo and the ThinkPad brand. The display is a disgrace.

P.S: After a lot of fighting with the customer service team, they replaced the display and the new one is just as terrible. It isn't a software issue, just that the display on the E14 is terrible and if you can avoid this laptop and go for the Asus Vivobook 14.
